Nigerian activist and Oodua Republic agitator, Sunday Adeyemi a.k.a Sunday Igboho has recounted how the fire accident at his home in Soka, Ibadan in Oyo State happened.
Igboho whose house was razed by suspected arsonist has revealed that properties worth 50 million were destroyed by the fire. He revealed this while addressing journalists on Tuesday, January 26.
His words in Yoruba translates;
The worth of what was destroyed at my house cannot be less than N50 million.”
“Around 3.30am today, my younger ones residing at my old house rushed to my gate to wake me up, saying some bandits came to the house, fired gunshots, broke the gate, and set the house ablaze. The two people at the house managed to escape. By the time I got there, the bandits had escaped. So, we called firefighters to help us put out the fire.” He said.
He also expressed sadness concerning Yorubas who are against the banishment of the Fulani herdsmen.
“What I find surprising is that some Yorubas are in support of the herdsmen to set my house on fire. I’m saddened by it,” Igboho said.
The activist also revealed that he’s not suspecting anyone yet, he added that the arsonist supposed to come to the exact building he was staying because he would have caught them and shown them to the world.
“For now, I do not suspect anyone. When they knew they could fight, fire gunshots, and set a house ablaze, isn’t it where I stay that they are supposed to come? If they had come to the house where I stay, I would have had evidence for you people (journalists) because they won’t all escape. It’s either you meet their dead bodies or meet them with broken legs. I thank God that they applied wisdom by going to a house where they know that I don’t live and destroyed my properties and burnt it down.”
